Just hasn't been an issue for me. I had problems with doing it in my Prius C because the accelerator pedal had such a feather-light touch that maintaining a certain position was like holding my foot suspended in the air. But the Bolt has a healthier return spring, and I find that I can maintain pressure on the pedal for hours without any problems.
On long, relatively straight stretches (which tend to be the exception rather than the rule here in mountainous British Columbia) I tend to use cruise control if the traffic isn't too heavy. But I guess I'm never really in situations which require coasting for such a long time that using the pedal to control it is a problem. Coasting for a distance means going downhill, and I find that usually either means cruise control or having to slow down for curves pretty frequently.
